Next-gen Intel processors to be called Intel Core i7


The next round of Intel processors have officially been named Intel Core. The very next round of processors, previously codenamed Nehalem, will go by the name Intel Core i7. As always, model numbers will be used to differentiate the different chips.

Yes, there will still be an Extreme Edition, which is the one on the right up there. Useful, perhaps, for those of you trying to play Crysis at decent speeds.

These chips should go into production in the fourth quarter of this year, with up to four cores of processing goodness.
